Attacks On Jews Increase as War in Lebanon Continues

Anti-Semitic incidents are on the rise since the start of fighting in Lebanon four weeks ago. At least 50 anti-Semitic incidents have been recorded worldwide in the past two weeks, Ynet reports.

A Sydney, Australia Jewish Youth Center was attacked and an attempt was made to burn it down.

Rabbi Wernick (L), inspects one of two cars with smashed rear windows outside his Jewish synagogue in Parramatta, Western Sydney. Witnesses told police they saw a group of “Middle Eastern men” laughing and running down the street shortly after the synagogue and cars were stoned. Australian police said they had stepped up patrols of Jewish and Islamic sites, fearing racial tensions over the conflict in the Middle East had triggered the attack.(AFP/Greg Wood)

A man in Oslo, Norway, defecated on the steps of Oslo’s synagogue, then smashed two windows there.

A synagogue in a Sao Paulo, Brazil suburb was vandalized by unidentified men throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails in early August.

And, of course there was the episode in Seattle where a young Muslim man shot dead a Jewish woman at the Seattle Jewish Federation Building.
